iPad App Review - The Guard Mouse

~ Posted on Wednesday, November 7, 2012 at 7:21 AM ~

I thought this app will make a good opportunity for me to teach my 3.5 years old boy about types of occupation and I feel that I could also use Ratatouille as an example in this app since it is quite similar (as in mouse/rat doing something out of the ordinary). Anyway, my review as below...

* It is engaging and interactive and I love that we can also touch the objects in each page on the screen and the words pop out to tell you what it is!

* I love the navigation features (Home button at top right corner and Pages at bottom page)

* I was not a fan of watercolored illustrations before this but I think my perception has changed after trying out this app. The drawings on each page is simply breathtakingly beautiful!

* I used the opportunity in this app to teach my 3.5 years old boy what does a palace guard do, and also showing him the beautiful scenery and sightseeing spots in London.

* I do however feel the price $3.99 is a bit high for this app though.
